Judge Gift of the Year Awards 2022

Handmade In Ashbourne

Laura was part of the judging panel for the Gift of the Year Awards 2022.

The Gift of the Year Awards are the largest and longest running awards in the home and gift industry. Each year, they receive hundreds of entries across twenty categories.


The panel of Judges is made up of retailers, buyers, industry press, bloggers, vloggers and influencers in the industry.

As a judge, Laura cast her vote on the Cards & Wrap, Design & Craft and Contemporary Gift categories, selecting the most innovative and original products.

Whilst judging the Contemporary Gift category, Laura discovered a product that she absolutely loved! The Twenty Minutes Beeswax Candle Set was selected as a Finalist and is now also stocked at Handmade Design.
